DANNENBERG, Germany (AFP) - A shipment of radioactive waste was nearing its final destination in Germany Monday on a five-day odyssey from France marred by sometimes violent clashes between police and demonstrators. The train with 11 containers of nuclear waste arrived in the northern town of Dannenberg before dawn after running a gauntlet of protesters trying to block its progress along the 1,200-kilometre (750-mile) route. The authorities then unloaded the waste on to trucks for its final 20-kilometre leg by road to a storage facility in Gorleben.
